“A good buget hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

I frequently visit this Aqueen Hotel Balestier. The reasons are 1)good price tag 2)clealiness of the room 3) good facilities(having in-room-safe, free wifi) for this class of hotel. But the location is just good, not the best choice if you are 1st-time stayer in Singapore. The only drawback I can't satisfy is not having a mini-fridege in a room. It's a must-have item for this mid-class hotel.

Totally, I can recommend this Aqueen Hotel Balestier if you looking a good budget class hotel.

I visited Singapore from 13th to 17th Aug and stayed at this place. it was a very nce experience staying at the hotel. its location is very good, near to little India as well as to the city. the Lavender food court is across the street. other important landmarks like MRT station, flyer and Marina Bay sands are 10 mins by cab. it was a pleasant stay.

Me and my wife enjoyed the stay very much at Aqueen Hotel. It is a very clean, modern, and comfortable hotel. Located wiithin 10 minutes walk to Lavender MRT station or 5 minutes walk to Boon Keng MRT Station. Close to Lavender Food Court. A nice food court that provide Local food of Singapore.

I would not hesitate to recommend the hotel to everyone.

I visited singapore from 5th to 10th August 2013 and stayed in HOTEL AQUEEN LAVENDER.
The hotel is decent enough for stay. The place is far from singapore hot spot (Mustafa Market/Little india) The distance would be around 2KMS.
I would suggest people travelling from India to check for the hotel check in and check out timings in advance. I had terrible time after reaching. My flght from India landed at 6AM in morning and the hotel check in timings was 2PM. Had no clue what to do for 8 hours. The check out timing is 12 in afternoon which again does not go very well with flights to India.
The hotel has a very very small restaurent with limited option for food (both veg and non veg).
For having DECENT food you mght have to walk all the way to Mustafa market or spend min of 5SGD to reach there.

The hotel staff is co-operative and very polite. They really try to help you with what ever they can.

Another issue with the hotel is that they provide only 2 small bottles of water every day and there is no house keeping to get your luggage moving in and out from the hotel.

Reception is always friendly and helpful. The room service (cleaning) is very considerate. They give us three bottles of water every day. And it's just 7 minute walk to the Lavender MRT station. There are two food centers nearby. It's convenient.

Room Tip: Choose the room not facing the main road on both sides.

Only really needed somewhere to sleep and shower for a couple of nights while doing some work in Singapore. The room was small but clean and comfortable. Advertising said there was a fridge but there wasn't. Staff were friendly, Wi-Fi was good and the area had lots of eateries of all types within easy walking distance. MRT not too close but the 131 or 21 bus takes you from the bus stop really close by to Novena MRT, so that wasn't really a problem.
Decent value for Singapore prices.

It's my second time to stay here, love it as always. You can feel the old Singapore in Balestier area. Plus I'm a foodie and there's so many good places to eat! Boon Tong Kee and Loy Kee has never failed me. Try the soursop juice, I like it very much.

Although the hotel is a bit far from MRT (Novena), but it close to a bus stop which you can take NO.21 or 131 to the nearest MRT. The staff is very polite and friendly, the room is tiny but got everything you need. There's many budget hotel on this street, but Aqueen is the best value one! Definitely will stay again. oh, there's no parking space in the hotel(only two slots), but you can park next to the building behind the hotel, and it's free after 5pm.

There's another Aqueen hotel in Lavender Road, but it's next to a funeral parlor, so go for it if you are a ghost lover :p
